YOU SEE THINGS AND SAY,

‘WHY?’….

 

…I DREAM THINGS THAT NEVER WERE AND SAY,

‘WHY NOT?’

 

– G.B. SHAW.

…MY NAME IS SARAH,

I AM AN ARTIST…

A PROFESSOR IN COLLEGE ONCE TOLD ME 

TO CHOOSE A STYLE

AND STICK WITH IT FOR A WHILE

THIS WAS LIKE TELLING ME TO CHOOSE ONE EMOTION 

AND STICK WITH IT FOR A COUPLE MONTHS

IN MY HEAD I THOUGHT, 

‘ARE YOU HIGH ON  MOLDY CRACK SIR?’

BUT I DIDN’T SAY THAT OUT LOUD

INSTEAD, I PICKED UP A BRUSH 

A PEN, A PENCIL, CHARCOAL, OIL PAINT, LEAVES, NEWSPAPER STRIPS, ACRYLIC PAINT, AND WHATEVER ELSE I COULD FIND

AND CONTINUED TO MAKE ART

I EVEN PAINTED MY CAR

*read this next line with the voice of Morgan Freeman*

BECAUSE MY NAME IS SARAH 

AND I, AM AN ARTIST
